Emerson enjoyed the first "snow" of the season wearing Eric's Cookie Monster hat! After dancing around the yard forever... we headed to see Santa, which she wanted nothing to do with. So we went to Build a Bear and made a horse named Sugar. I don't blame her, Santa is a little creepy.

Emerson picked out our tree this year, though she insisted it was too big. (Emerson, a tree is never too big in our world.) Then she helped decorate it! You can tell of her assistance due to the amazing amount of decorations on the lower left side... and we only broke 3 in the process!

Just like a true Diva who insists on costume changes half way through a party, Emerson decided that being Cindy all night long would not due. After a brief meltdown she emerged as Abby Cadabby (last year's costume that was never used). She loved the candy and running from house to house, screaming "I got candy, guys!".

Thank Goodness Nanny and Mickey planted a field of pumpkins for Emerson... but the girl still needed to go and get a couple to paint! Emerson and I went to one of the many pumpkin places on 306. She liked this one cause there were big rounds of hay outfitted like spiders. After a little convincing she went into the picture booth! She insisted on pulling her own wagon, picking her own baby pumpkins and paying the cashier. Totally cool cause she gave me the change!

The Sullivans made it to Ohio this summer and we joined them for a trip around the Cleveland Zoo (which I am personally disappointed in... very much so... and am soooo glad we did not get a membership this summer). Emerson loved impersonating the camels and we loved getting to meet Fia!
A couple of years ago my mother gave us these chairs and at one time I attempted to stain them both green. After a few summers of abuse and neglect, I decided to let Emerson have a hand at it. I gave her 2 different greens and a pink to work with. Within moments she decided to mix the paint colors together, which formed a sickly flesh color. Yet, here is the result; her chair is the one on the left, mine is the one to the right. Come next spring I will let her at it again and we will continue for as long as the chairs hold out!
Emerson has taken interest in the camera and since I will not let her touch it, I let her pick the items to be photographed. She dragged me around the house and carefully picked out things she loves... little people, her chalkboard, the tomatoes she grew, her dollhouse and her kitchen food.

So after a week of perfect weather reports... Flip Cup 2009 suffered to mother nature's anger. While the tent didn't blow away, it did manage to lift up in the worst rain storm we have ever seen at this house. Everything may have been soaked... but after a short delay the game went on! Congrats to the winners... Andy, Jewels and my DAD! From the pics you can see the winning team and Granny the ref! Emerson had a blast, although I hope she never remembers it!
